Wilson was born in 1980 in Sydney, Australia. Wilson was educated in acting at the Australian Theatre for young people in the United States. After achieving a very prominent career in Australia, she decided to set her sights in American films, which she is best known for Brides Maids, and Pitch Perfect. She is also a writer and producer.

Kendrick believes that as an actor she tries to let humbleness out weigh determination. Her most humbling instance was when she returned home from the Oscars, and sat on her Ikea bed watching a rerun of family Guy, trying not to spill her microwave dinner on her gown. She admits to being the lazy person she portrayed in Scott Pilgrim vs the World. Kendrick who is extremely appreciative of her fame, is relieved that the Oscars are over. All the running around wearing clothes that someone else told her too, and saying what they wanted her to say, when they told her to say it, is somewhat confusing for the actress. She did not become an actor for any of those reasons.
Kendrick says it has been luck more than anything for her fame. She believes there are so many more gifted actors in her career, that deserves it more than her. She feels very fortunate to have it all happen the way it did, one thing at a time, and not rushed. It helped her to breathe easier, not being so overwhelmed makes it simpler to absorb everything that is happening in her life.
With two top-notch actresses like Kendrick and Wilson, how can Pitch Perfect 2 is definitely better than Pitch Perfect. These two actresses are dedicated to their craft, and believe in working hard.
